Lunch Topic: What animal should Blizzard add to the WoW bestiary? {WoW}

Mar 16th 2011 6:26PM Azeroth needs weta.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weta

As tameable pets. And at least one as a boss.

Breakfast Topic: Do you appreciate the beauty of a fascinating bug? {WoW}

Feb 15th 2011 4:43PM Our very serious MT and raid leader (but no one else) was afflicted by the naked bug the first time we downed the Lich King. Our triumphant screenshots were made more interesting by the presence of a ginger dwarf in his manky old undies standing in the middle.

Breakfast Topic: What WoW figure do you want on your desert island? {WoW}

Jan 13th 2011 4:37PM Ooh so hard to choose.
I'd like Bolvar Fordragon, except now he's unavailable.

Algalon is a contender, because he rocks, is thoroughly trustworthy, and also wouldn't need to share the food or water.

Fargo Flintlocke or Lilian Voss would also be awesome, but would become nerve-wracking companions after a while. Like after about 5 minutes.

Thassarian perhaps, because my dwarf has always fancied him, even though she's reached the conclusion that he and Koltira Deathweaver really ought to get together and live happily every after. Or un-live. Whatever DKs do.

Nibblet the Exodar Cat, or Moodle the sarcastic oracle, would also be very high on the list.

But I think my final choice would be Chromie, because...well, she's Chromie. She can do wibbly wobbly timey wimey things, some of which may well come in handy. And most importantly, I would never ever be bored with her around.

Breakfast Topic: What's a deal-breaker in your love for a particular race? {WoW}

Dec 27th 2010 4:01PM I'll never roll a character if I don't like their face - which for me rules out human males, nelf males, forsaken males and orcs of both genders. (Every other race and gender has at least two facial options I can live with, although I really wish there were more choices for troll females).

Dances I'm pretty indifferent to. I think the only dance in the game that I actually like is the male forsaken and that's one of the race/gender combos I've never played.

The real dealbreaker for me is the character's running/casting/melee animation. I've often rolled particular races and stuck with them for a while, only to find myself race changing or just never playing them because I can't make myself like the way they move. That means no gnomes, taurens, male dwarves, or female nelves (especially that melee "ready" posture which drives me nuts).

Male worgen casting animation is a bit borderline for me but they make up for it, oddly, by having actual hands and feet (well paws) as opposed to the awful oven-mitts and flesh-slippers seen on most races.

I don't think I will ever love anything as much as I love my forsaken females' attack animations and my female goblin's run.



Breakfast Topic: Your biggest regrets from the Wrath era {WoW}

Dec 4th 2010 3:17PM I have half a Val'anyr and I regret not getting the rest.
I regret 90% of the time I spent in TOC. Once through would have been enough.
And although it's not a Wrath-specific regret, I'm sorry that I never did get Hakkar.

But really, I've got most of what I wanted from this expansion. It's been a great trip.

Breakfast Topic: The starting zones you most love or hate {WoW}

Nov 28th 2010 1:47PM I generally took every alliance character to Dun Morogh. I enjoyed the quest progression and good rewards in Azuremyst/Bloodmyst but tended to be put off by the amount of pink. Elwyn Forest I always disliked (the existence of Goldshire was a major factor in that) and Shadowglen/Teldrassil I absolutely hated.

Horde side, somehow I nearly always ended up doing Durotar/Barrens.

Since the Shattering, the only starting zone I've done right through has been Tirisfal Glades. It's awesome. Very much looking forward to Silverpine.

The OverAchiever: Guide to Pilgrim's Bounty 2010, Part 2 {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2010 6:07PM I love it when my dwarf rogue is popular for a change :)

Breakfast Topic: Goodbye Hallow's End, hello Day of the Dead {WoW}

Nov 1st 2010 2:42PM After the past two years of biting my fingernails and muttering bad words over the squashling and helm, my main found herself up to the eyeballs in them. Lost track of how many I deleted!
A guildie and I formed the theory that the HH mount was a paladin-and-priest only item, when it occurred to us that everyone we knew personally who got it over the years was one of those classes. I got it on both my paladin and my priest.

Breakfast Topic: Revenge is a dish best served at the level cap {WoW}

Oct 20th 2010 3:31PM Nathanos Blightcaller is my nemesis. It gave me great pleasure to pay him a visit on my grown-up paladin.

That said, I still have a sentimental fondness for the days when he and his skellies used to mow down good sized raid groups. Having an outdoor raid boss that just happens to also be a horde quest giver was a clever and twisted idea on Blizzard's part.

Cataclysm Beta: Worgen female models {WoW}

Sep 19th 2010 3:57PM Wait what...the previous version of the female worgen was even MORE cuddly than this one?
I'm glad I didn't see it. They seemed to have turned the cutesy-wutesy dial all the way to 11.
